Set Belt CG The OPC belt cartridge needs replacement.
Replacing the Optical Photoconductor (OPC) Belt Cartridge Replace the OPC belt cartridge at least once every 12 months, or when the control panel display indicates that replacement is necessary. The life of the OPC belt cartridge for the T8106 is about 60,000 images (15,000 color pages), at a 5% toner coverage rate on letter-size paper. 1. Turn the power switch off. 2. Unlock the lever to open the front cover. This releases the pressure on the toner cartridges. 3. Unlock the lever to open the top cover fully. 4. Pull the green OPC belt cartridge lock levers up until they unlock.
5. Pull the used OPC belt cartridge upward and out of the printer carefully to avoid spilling toner. 6. Discard the used OPC belt cartridge Caution! Do not touch or wipe off any powder that is on the OPC belt, nor expose the OPC belt to light. 7. Remove the two shipping pins from the new OPC belt cartridge. 8. Remove the protective sheet that covers the photosensitive belt. 9. Slide the new OPC belt cartridge downward into both green lock-lever guides and into the printer carefully. 10. Push the green OPC belt cartridge lock levers down until they lock. 11. Close the top and front covers carefully until they both lock.
Check to make certain that the OPC belt is both seated correctly and that it is not damaged as even though it may have what you consider to be sufficient life left in it, if damaged, it needs to be replaced.
You are correct the 'Belt CG' is the OPC belt cartrige. The mesage advising this item needs to be replaced comes up as the result of a page counter in the printer. The mesage comes up as a result of the page counter exceeding the maximum number of pages expected from the OPC, ensuring reliable print qulaity.
The message does not indicate the OPC Belt is damage, it has reached the end of its designed life.
